last option is best of three in my opinion...

...as for its use with FRAPS: it is best to have an entire HDD dedicated to it for its insane write speed/space requirements (lack of compression). I have seen 2 hours of 1080p 60 fps video take over 100 GB of space.

Above, we have opinions for all three choices. Unless one or more are on sale, the one that is most expensive is probably the most powerful.

If you choose the second one, you can get more power out of it due to the quad core, and the quad core phenoms overclock really well. Its a great deal.
